Keaton is currently recording his debut album, RISE, an album dedicated to presenting social change and consciousness while creating awareness of injustices and inequalities among minorities and the developing poor in today’s society.

With his passion for music and dedication towards activism, Julian Keaton is a rose that grew from concrete.
